I’m Olivia, a fashion photographer, blogger and Podcaster. A Swiss native with an obsession for the sea (can you see the irony in that?), my dog and magazines. I work with brands and business throughout the UK such as Barbour, Joules, White Stuff and Crew Clothing. I help them to grow their audiences, sell their products and inspire their followers.
Who Have I Worked With?
I’ve always been obsessed with fashion - I grew up flicking through all of my mum’s fashion magazines. When I was 15 and discovered photography, my life changed forever. After 3 years studying Fashion Photography at Falmouth university, I decided to stay in Cornwall and pursue my career as a photographer. However, things didn’t go quite to plan.
Fashion photography felt totally out of my reach, because I wasn’t living in London. I told myself that it wasn’t possible for me, so I needed to focus on something else. That something was weddings. I spent a year and a half marketing and building up a wedding photography business, only to shoot my first wedding… and hate it.
Frustrated with myself, I decided that there must be another way. Surely, there was a way for me to live my dream, no matter where I chose to live?
That was when everything changed.
I began to pitch myself to brands that I wanted to work with, offering to shoot imagery for them from the beautiful location I lived in; Cornwall. To my relief, it worked.
I’m now happy to say that I no longer shoot weddings. In fact, I work full time as a fashion and content photographer for brands all over the country - and now, all over the world!
I am proof that you can be a successful fashion photographer, no matter where you choose to live.
About my Photography:
My photography has been described as fresh, calming and romantic... with a bit of adventure mixed in. Whether it's shooting a full fashion collection with the elements running wild around me, or shooting a creative editorial in the studio, I always bring my calm attitude to the job. I've also helped everyone from brands to creative start ups boost their social media followings. If you're in need of images for your next ad campaign, want to up your Instagram game, or want to capture your new collection in an imaginative and original way, I’d love to hear from you.

We were keen to work with Olivia for our official Joules Instagram account. She was very enthusiastic about helping and getting involved. Her mood boards were on brand and her ability to capture the personality of the brand into a story was perfect. The final edits were amazing and received high praise across the entire Joules team. We always continue to share all her images across the business as well as on our social channels. Olivia helped us to tell the story of "World Photo Day", capturing the perfect family holiday snap. She was more than happy to help and get creative once more. She understood the mood, theme and story we wanted to portray and once again, the final edits impressed!
We’re already looking forward to working with Olivia again. Thank you Olivia!
We’ve really enjoyed working with Olivia on content creation for Crew Clothing Company’s social media channels. We’re based in London but many of our stores are dotted along the south coast so it’s been really handy working with Olivia who lives nearby. The images she’s captured for us have always been spot on. She interprets briefs well, has a great eye for detail and understands our brand perfectly. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
We were looking for coastal photography so Olivia came to mind. I remembered that she'd been really forthcoming and willing to try new things so we knew she'd like the challenge! Olivia is very quick to respond, positive and comes up with great creative solutions. The work produced was a branding exercise and was very positively received particularly on Facebook. We couldn't have gotten that without working with Olivia.
